‘The sound of silence: Irish languages sources for the 1916 Rising.’
Much of the 1916 revolution was inspired by the Irish language. Most of the leaders had a positive relation with it. Yet, much of what they wrote and what was written about them in Irish has been sidelined in the historical debates. This talk seeks to look at those sources and what they have contributed to our understanding of the resistance.
